Capt Amrinder to gangsters “lay down arms, Else we know how to deal with you”


Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Tuesday warned to the gangsters to lay down arms.

He said his government will deal with gangsters with an iron fist if they did not surrender.

“Nobody will be allowed to vitiate the atmosphere of Punjab,” he said while pointing out steps taken by his government to improve the law and order situation.

He later tweeted also: “I appeal to all gangsters to lay down arms. Else we know how to deal with you. We will not let anyone vitiate the state’s atmosphere. Have already eliminated many gangs, with 707 gangsters arrested by Punjab Police.”

‘Halqa’ system has been abolished and the government is following a policy of no political interference in civil and police functioning, he said.

Twenty-two of 32 cases of sacrilege have been solved, he added.

The Justice Ranjit Singh Commission inquiry into the sacrilege cases was near completion, he said, rejecting Akali leader Bikram Singh Majithia’s request that the investigation into these cases be handed over to a retired Supreme Court judge since Justice (Retd) Ranjit Singh had links with Leader of Opposition Sukhpal Singh Khaira.
